“I constantly go between wanting you to stay my little baby forever, and being excited about all of the amazing things you’ll do in this life.”

Oh, how I love this quote! It was true when Abby entered Kindergarten, and its still true today at 23.

What is FUNFETTI® ?

FUNFETTI® is rainbow sprinkles (also called jimmies in parts of the Northeast, did you know that?) The sprinkles are made from sugar, various waxy shortenings and bright artificial colors.

The funfetti movement began in 1989, when Pillsbury introduced a Funfetti cake mix, a white cake mix with multicolored sprinkles in the cake mix box!

Tips for cost saving board

Bake your own FUNFETTI® (Pillsbury) box cake! Its convieniently quick and doesnt break the bank.

One of the tips for making an epic board is to buy generic brands, or off-brands, for all the “treats.”

We bought a few items from Trader Joe’s, which is pretty inexpensive.

There’s no way around it though, this epic board feed a lot of guests, but it does take some some money to prepare!

This 28″ size feeds 12-20 (depending on portions), and of course you can buy smaller boards and adjust accordingly.[INFO BELOW]

28-inch Charcuterie Board

Friends, here are the boards that I LOVE. A “lip” is the secret to the best charcuterie or dinner board, because the food does not fall off.

Here are the LINKS:

LARGE Hand-Carved Gabrielle Tray, Large – 28.5 inches round. Buy >> HERE (affiliate link) 

LARGE Hand-Carved Gabrielle Tray (gray) – 24 inches round. Buy >> HERE (affiliate link)

MEDIUM Hand-Carved Vine Round Tray (white washed) – 20 inches round. Buy >> HERE (affiliate link)

SMALL Hand-Carved Gabrielle Tray (gray) – 18-inches round. Buy >> HERE (affiliate link)

MEDIUM Willow Hand-Carved Tray (mango wood, gray) – 20.25 inches round. Buy >> HERE (affiliate link)

MEDIUM Whitewashed Mosaic Wood Tray (antique white) – 20-inches round. Buy >> HERE (affiliate 

Rememember it says it is “not food safe,” so you need to prepare the board by either laying down parchment paper under the food, or you can “season” it like we did.

Here are a few other options:

Courtland Wooden Lazy Susan – 18-inch round. Buy >> HERE (affiliate link)

LAZY SUSAN is a board that spins. It does NOT have a lip, but it’s cool for the center of the table.

Here’s an 18-inch wine barrel wood board or a 24-inch hammered large round tray or a 26-inch stainless steel serving platter that you may also like! Check out the weight on these boards.

How to season a Charcuterie Board

If a wood board says it “not food safe,” you can lightly sand it down with sand paper, and rub down with beeswax and mineral oil.

We used this butcher block and cutting board oil conditioner after we lightly sanded the board down.

Or, lay down parchment paper! Easy peasy!
